Give it a watch, dummy!
Airhead was announced for Switch back in 2020, but we’re still waiting on the game’s release. As far as we know, it’s still slated to launch sometime this year, but we don’t have a specific date yet. What we do have is a new gameplay trailer, which you can check out above.
A symbiotic being, reliant on its own air source, is ripped apart by a machine of unknown origin. Incomplete, the head-like organism is left to die, as it slowly leaks air.
An unassuming Body, with an instinct to help others, witnesses the tragedy. With no thoughts to the consequences, it takes its new head’s fate on its shoulders, becoming Airhead.
Now, Airhead must rely on air tanks to keep the Head inflated, while it searches far and wide for the machine that stole Head’s air source. But that machine is only a small part of a larger whole, and Head may hold a greater place in the grand scheme than Body could have ever imagined.
Airhead is an adventure through a sprawling interconnected world, where you must explore, evolve and overcome intricate puzzles to succeed. You play as Airhead, a small Body and the round inflated organism it uses as a Head. While Head is slowly but surely deflating, you have a chance to save its life, by using air tanks to keep Head inflated while you explore Airhead’s Metroidvania-style world.
Search for amazing abilities and upgrades that will unlock new areas and puzzles for you to overcome. On your adventure, it will be up to you to uncover the true connection between Head, the air tanks, and the technology that litters the world, so you can save Head no matter the cost.
